George Bush in his TBM Avenger on the carrier ...Bush

I am well aware that much of the country does not share my views about Bush. Living in Northern California makes me spoiled and out of touch when it comes to the nations pulse. When I was in Tampa, I remember being astonished when I saw an editorial in support of a policy decision by Bush. It was a major paper, with awards and everything.

I won’t be moving to Tampa any time soon.

In case it’s not clear: I think that Bush is an untreated alcoholic, in over his head and manipulated by people not much smarter than toads, but meaner.

Though aware that other people have a different opinion I not only think that they are wrong – I think they are idiots as well. We have had eight years of Bush land and every single indicator of national well being is worse off now than it was when he started.

And then I read the neo-cons seem to think that the problem is we didn’t go far enough.

It’s not possible for me to hear a person support Bush without socially rubbing them out in my mind. Nothing they can say to me about anything else – movie reviews, dinner spots, sexual positions – nothing gets through to me after they voice support for Bush.

It’s not intolerance, though I believe that tolerance is just learning to put up with other peoples shit until you get used to it, it’s more – it’s a fundamental disagreement about the meaning of life.

I try not to talk politics with people I like in case they say something about Bush and ruin it.

The funny thing is I started feeling that way about people who wanted Hillary to win the democratic nomination…

Explain nothing, except your self

Explain nothing, except your self. I feel like the last of a tribe struggling to keep my identity a secret from the mob, one step ahead at best, reduced to hiding in bushes from the monsters waiting to snag and devour me. Sort of a delicacy and a poison – a non-specific drug that exudes memes instead of hormones and physical highs – subconscious, primitive analog get-off-ness apparently responsible for some weird competitive advantage consolidating over geological time out of our mixed genus ancestors, or maybe Texans. At the same time, I feel like spasmed dots from gods own printer cartridge ejaculated onto the canvas of a great emptiness, the thought of which is expressed in the three-dimensional representation of the position I’m braced into while doing the splatting -- all hologram like but only juicier and used -- like an in and out burger wrapper chewed on by a trashcan opossum. Or better, a goat in a pickup heading for a quinceanera debating Schrödinger with the

Free Willy

“…Some say it's just a part of it We've got to fulfill the book.” B. Marley Before I completely run away from the point, the subject of this essay is free will, or, more accurately, the illusion of free will. It will be interesting to see if free will even comes up laterally over the next few hundred words now that I’ve set it up as a specific goal.  The imp of the perverse makes it a sure thing that I won’t – but that surety might also double back and force  me to stay on point. There are no dogs to pick  in this fight and it’s not a fight,  and if I’m right, none of this is anything but documentation for a litigious god that will never see it. Like quantum mechanics, life is about either time or place, never both, and how we choose to pretty up our choices is neither the point, or even a choice – it’s after the fact punctuation we use to justify and make sense of our ontological messiness.  (Science has proven that we decide things with our body before the brain
